It’s all Lothal on Rebels’‘The Occupation’ and ”Flight of the Defender.’ Andi Gutierrez talks to Taylor Gray, Henry Gilroy, Dave Filoni, Kilian Plunkett, Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Keith Kellogg, Caroline Robinson Kermel and Joel Aron. Pablo Hidalgo answers questions about death troopers.
Yavin IV, Saw Saw Gerrera and lots of Rogue One tie-ins come in with ‘In the Name of the Rebellion.’ Andi Gutierrez talks to Dave Filoni, Pablo Hidalgo, Steve Blum, Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray, Amy Beth Christenson, Joel Aron and Caroline Robinson Kermel. Pablo also answers questions about armor and holograms.
Rebels heads back to the Rebellion – and the show’s first look at Yavin – with ‘In the Name of the Rebellion.’ It features the less than joyous return of Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker), as seen in the preview clip.
The two-part ‘In the Name of the Rebellion.’ will air on Disney XD Monday, at 9:00pm EDT/PDT, and be available at midnight on the Disney Now app.
Rebels Recon returns along with ‘Heroes of Mandalore.’ Andi Gutierrez talks to Tiya Sircar, Caroline Robinson Kermel, Keith Kellogg, Henry Gilroy, Joel Aron, Amy Beth Christenson, Kilian Plunkett, and Pablo Hidalgo.
Star Wars Rebels is back Monday, October 16 with the two-parter ‘Heroes of Mandalore.’ The hour-long episode is kicking off the show’s fourth and final season. Here’s the blurb from Lucasfilm:
In this premiere episode, Sabine leads Ezra, Kanan and an army of her fellow Mandalorians back to her homeworld to rescue her father from the clutches of the Empire. When she discovers the Empire has resurrected a devastating weapon, she must decide whether to destroy it or use it herself.
To get you caught up, Lucasfilm has released a short recap of seasons 1-3. All three full seasons are also available on the DisneyNow App, which I believe is accessible to everyone, regardless of whether you have XD or not.
‘Heroes of Mandalore’ will air on Disney XD throughout the day Monday, at 12:30am, 3:00am, 7:30am, 5:30pm and 9pm EDT/PDT.
The fourth and final season of Rebels will air throughout the fall in mostly one-hour blocks. Here’s the 2016 schedule:
Monday, 10/16 – “Heroes of Mandalore” Parts 1 & 2
Monday, 10/23 – “In the Name of the Rebellion” Parts 1 & 2
Monday, 10/30 – “The Occupation” and “Flight of the Defender”
Monday, 11/6 – “Kindred” and “Crawler Commandeers”
Monday, 11/13 – “Rebel Assault”
Episodes will air at 12:30 a.m., 3:00 a.m., 7:30 a.m., 5:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD. (This isn’t a huge departure from previous seasons, where anyone with the app could watch the show early. The extended airing times haven’t put a stop to that, either.) Rebels Recon will continue to be posted after the 9:00pm showing.
They’ll return after the hiatus – and The Last Jedi – to finish off the season. The finale is “so secret that only a few people on the production team know how it will end,” Lucasfilm said in the release.
